6th graders, the average age for thoughts of suicide begins around the age of 10. TEN years old. Let me say it like this, I know of children, babies as young as 6 years old who have died by suicide.
It’s beyond the time to do something. We’ve had this problem, it’s our problem, they’re our loved ones. What are we doing to help them? I know the word is difficult to hear, but I would rather say the word now in the hopes of helping than not say it and lose someone to it’s silence.
We yell at each other about all these problems, but what are we actually DOING to fix them?
